There are some things I hate in life.... one of them is punk buster... So im trying to play BF: 1942 because its easy and a group of friends are getting ready to install it, im just trying to make sure it works. Well, it doesnt. Stupid faggot ass program (Punk Buster) is making things very complecated. When ever I play in a punk buster server, it will eventually boot me out and give me this stupid messages saying "Roarthealmighty has been booted (for 0 minutes)........ for inadequate (sp?) OS" or something of that matter. So i think, "oh, my punk buster must need to be updated, and its obviously not auto-updating" so I go to filefront and download BattleField: 1942 Punk Buster Manual Update. It gives me some link type thing, when i open it says this: To Manually update your local PunkBuster Security Files, choose "Save As" from your Web Browser's "File" Menu and explore to find your game folder and the subfolder called "pb", then save this file in that location (/pb/pbsec.htm or /pb/pbsecsv.htm). The next time you start your game, your PunkBuster will have the latest security information necessary to accept auto-updates from PB Servers.

So i save as pbsec. Well, of course I get back on BF having high hopes and then guess what..... it doenst work, imagine that. Same problem. Oh ya, and I have downloaded the latest patchs, 1.6 and 1.6b or something. And I still have server names that are gray... whats that mean? Some are that normal bright yellow, but majority are dark gray. Does that mean they have a different version than me? If so, what version do I need? Any help would be awesome. Thanks.
Any help would be great. heres what the problem actually looks like:
This has been brought up multiple times before. This;
Stupid faggot ass program (Punk Buster)
is completely unwarranted, it's not Punkbuster, it's YOUR computer. If you had looked around on the Punkbuster website before mouthing off you would have seen this in the FAQ section.
I keep getting kicked by PunkBuster for "Insufficient O/S Privileges". Is there some way to modify my system configuration to be an administrator equivalent from PunkBuster's perspective in XP Home, or for Pro Users that get their rights reset?
Download and run this file from any location, it will check for adware that stops you from being able to play on PB servers. The VX2 adware edits your user rights when it infects your computer, and many programs do not repair this when they remove it.
Click the "Find VX2.betterinternet info" button to make sure that you don't have this adware. If there are no files listed, go on to the last step. If you find the adware files, (it is usually 3 random named dll files) Select all the files found.
Press 'Delete These Files'. The program will delete all files but one that will be deleted on reboot. Allow program to reboot. Once Restarted:
* Press 'Guardian.reg'. * Press 'User Agent'. * Press 'Restore Policy'.
Clicking on "find vx2.BetterInternet info" again should show all fields blank. If you have no adware files, just click on the "Restore Policy" Button
So its your stupid faggot ass computer ;) not Punkbuster.

No, it's this one: http://tools.zerosrealm.com/VX2Finder(126).exe
^ok.... wtf is that? I copied and pasted it into my address bar.. and it downloaded some program that I had no idea what it was, nor did I know how to use it...
Yes you have the correct internet address for Punkbuster, it works every time for me, but maybe you just timed it wrong.
The other program, "VX2Finder(126).exe" is the program that the Punkbuster ppl recommend for fixing your probelm, there are a instructions on how to use it in my post.
Download and run this file from any location
ah, thanks a ton.
wow... I have no clue what i'm doing.... it found some stuff, I deleted a lot of stuff, and i finally got it down to just finding one thing, and so i said to open the registery something, like I did with all the other things... and there is a huge ass list of stuff on the left side, and I don't know what to delete, and what to keep, because I'm retarded.
